File Water and Sanitation Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Jul 22, 2019 01:35 PM
Natural ecosystems capture, store and purify water, allowing biodiversity programming to complement and protect water and sanitation investments. Similarly, by improving waste water treatment and increasing water use efficiency, water and sanitation programming reduces the pollution of aquatic ecosystems and lessens the amount of water taken from rivers or lakes.
File Democracy, Human Rights and Governance Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Jul 22, 2019 01:34 PM
Democracy, human rights and governance (DRG) challenges—such as weak institutions, insecure access to natural resources and lack of participation in decision-making—are key drivers of biodiversity loss, and DRG programming can yield substantial benefits for biodiversity. Similarly, biodiversity programming often yields DRG co-benefits by promoting co-management of resources, investments in judicial systems and support to land tenure systems.
File Biodiversity Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Sep 11, 2019 05:16 PM
Ecosystems provide goods and services critical to human development and well-being such as food, fiber, clean water, fertile soil and pollination. Opportunities for integrating biodiversity with other development sectors exist throughout the USAID portfolio, and can be realized by the coordination of existing programming, co-location of new activities or planned co-funding.
File Food Security Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Sep 11, 2019 05:16 PM
Ecosystems provide goods and services that support food production—including provision of wild foods and water, pest control and pollination—and biodiversity programming can have significant positive impacts on food security.

File Targeting Natural Resource Corruption Associate Award Support by Allison Taylor — last modified Jul 10, 2019 02:00 PM
Associate Awards (AAs) under the Targeting Natural Resource Corruption (TNRC) project offer a unique opportunity to implement a variety of anti-corruption approaches tailored to specific contexts and natural resource management (NRM) challenges. AAs are stand-alone agreements between a USAID mission or operating unit and World Wildlife Fund (WWF-US), separate from the Leader Award (LA). To realize the full potential of TNRC, however, coordination between the LA and AAs—especially on learning—will be a feature of WWF’s response. AA implementation will in most cases be led by WWF or TRAFFIC at the country level, working with other local, national and/or international partners as appropriate for the designated objectives and activities.

The TNRC consortium is led by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) with the U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre at the Chr.
